It’s back on. Kit Kat Chunky have released four more new flavours of bars as a trial, and they are up on Facebook for you to vote for your favourite. The one with the most votes gets to stay on the shelves. Last time I got rather excited about the peanut butter edition, but this year I plan to just work through the varieties with an open mind. On the list we have Coconut, Hazelnut, Mint and Chocolate Fudge. I managed to pick up all four bars in a local newsagent, and I thought I’d start by trying the coconut.
Once it was unwrapped the coconut aroma was lovely and strong, and it blended well with the sweet smell of chocolate. Strangely enough there was no specific layer of coconut running through the bar, the flavour is all mixed in with the milk chocolate coating. I was expecting a layer of Bounty style coconut, but on appearances it looked much the same as a plain Kit Kat Chunky.
The flavour was rather lovely though. The coconut was creamy and sweet and worked well with the chocolate. It wasn’t too strong or over powering, just well balance and adding a nice balance to the flavours. It tasted almost cooling to eat, and it reminded me how much I like coconut. Why aren’t there more coconut bars on the market?
I love the fact that they tried something a bit different for this Kit Kat Chunky, it adds a lovely bit of exotic to the mix. I’m also looking forward to trying out the other three flavours, but I’ll be honest this is going to be hard to beat.
